TV host and popular brand ambassador Maine Mendoza caused ripples of excitement on social media when she dropped the news of her memoir. And the announcement of the book’s title on Instagram by its publisher Summit Books fueled anticipation for its launch.
Entitled “Yup, I’m that Girl,” Maine’s wish is to have her book out for the public by the end of October.
So what can her fans expect from her book?
In an interview, she described, “Personal book ko siya. Basically it’s about my life, lessons and experiences.”
According to her, her book was five months in the making. And whether she had a hard time writing it being a private person, she said yes.
“I’m that type of girl that wears her heart with her sleeves. Parang nasanay na rin ako since I own a blog. I write din naman talaga. Ever since naman, I’ve expressed myself thoroughly through writing. I’ve shared that with the public. Since di na ako nakakapag-post sa blog ko, dito ko na binuhos sa book ko,” she shared.
Maine Mendoza rose to stardom first on social media with her Dubsmash antics then later on was cast as a regular in “Eat Bulaga.” When she and Alden Richards became the AlDub loveteam in the show’s “Kalyeserye,” they were catapulted to the stature of Philippine icons.
It has since then been a busy showbiz career for Maine with Alden. After their tandem in GMA7’s “Destined To Be Yours,” and the movies “My Bebe Love: #KiligPaMore” and “Imagine You and Me,” they will be in “Love Is,” which is an “Eat Bulaga” film for television by award winning filmmaker Adolfo Borinaga Alix, Jr. airing on October 21, 2017.
With regards to their movie wherein news surfaced that they were already training for it, she hinted, “We’ve trained before in Muay Thai and boxing. Pero nag-uusap pa rin and meetings. Siyempre gusto ng management na magandang maganda ’yung project.”
As a brand ambassador, Maine’s endorsing projects are growing. Just recently she was tagged as the face of Kamiliant travel luggage. The first venture of the brand in the Philippines, Maine also is their first celebrity endorser.
According to Samsonite Philippines Country Head, Ciely Buenviaje, Maine was perfect for their brand.
“Fun loving, youthful, vibrant and adventurous personality of Maine speaks too well to the Kamiliant brand. They have the same personality as the brand,” she explained.
As for the next travel destination of Maine Mendoza when she gets some needed R&R from her hectic work schedule, she hopes to visit Hawaii.
“Ako kasi I love to travel but I’m not much of the traveler because I work everyday,” revealed Maine.
